If I want to work out, I'll go to a gym. Which I do every friday where I practice Aikido and for 1,5 hours and after that do some fitness for about an hour.

In the weekend I want to sit down, relax and play some games, like MGS, FF and GOW. Or if I have friends or family I play multiplayers games with them like fighting games, race games or shooting games. Why on earth would I want to do Wiifit on my relaxation days.

This looks like one of those TellSell commercials where everybody is wowed by the device and tell themselfs that they will buy it and use it frequently so that they can be "fit". In reality they use is for about a week or 2 and after that they never touch it again.

Come on now, it doesn't even look like fun. Trying to balance yourself on the thing and putting a fake smile. Let me see you putting a smile EVERY FREAKING TIME YOU DO THIS.

As I said before, If I want to work out I go to the gym. Don't go all TellSell on me and give me something I can really enjoy.

You nailed it right there.

What's missing from your post is a statement about the hundreds of thousands of people who don't go to the gym but instead work out at home on their various TV bought gym equipment (i.e. 6 Second ABS, Core Sculptor, Ston-O-Max Turbo Body Toner, elliptical machines, etc. etc.). May I add they are all around $60-$100.

There is a market for this and it will sell millions. I'm not interested in the fitness part of it either but I know quite a few people who find it exciting. My interest lies in the potential of this board. I'd love to play a snowboarding game where I stand on this board and steer by leaning among other things.

Subsequently, I think it is priced a bit high, myself. WiiFit along with a balance board to retail at $69.99 is bascially saying, "Buy the balance board for $70 and we'll throw in a 'game' that you'll find little interest in for free."

It shouldn't be any more expensive than $50. Say $39.99 for the board, which is the same price as the Wiimote and $9.99 for WiiFit. Then take off $20 since Nintendo has made an outstanding profit on the Wii and they would like to give something back to the customer. So WiiFit should really be selling for $29.99.

WiiSh!t you mean

Really. This E3 wasn't about gamers for them. It is about fat housewives that need to loose weight.

THis is the end of Nintendo as we know it. Not for gamers anymore. For mindless fun and loose weight it is now.

For once I agree with you! Hopefully some day you will have a PS3 gamers tag underneath your profile. But that is asking to much!

Will the japanese even buy this thing?
It's always been said that the size of an object is quite a big factor when someone goes to purcahse it.

And frnakly, this thing is larger than the 360, and probably more than the PS3, as well.
Let's see if Ninty can find us some hypocrites.
